5:08 am
chances of winning on tuesday. >> if the president wins florida, the election is over. ohio, in many respects, is the pivotal state. can romney find a path towards the presidency without ohio? and i would say that with wisconsin in play and that being a home state advantage for ryan, that wisconsin gives an alternative. >> and both campaigns are expected to cris cross one another this weekend in swing states like new hampshire, iowa and virginia. voters turned out on the final day of early voting. 90,000 voters cast their ballots. numbers have been huge eve within the disruption of hurricane sandy. >> samantha burrell wasn't expecting to be met with cheers at her voting location on friday. but that's exactly what she got. she's a proud first time voter and an early voter.

buildings and early voters waited for three hours or longer. >> these are great numbers, you know. i think the storm had something to do with the first few days, and then once it was known that the storm was coming, lot of voters came out early, and so we really had lines at that point. but this is a good election and people are coming out. >> early voting was supposed to be six days but because of sandy we ended up with five. the presidential race and a lot of ballot questions have undoubtedly played a big role in the record turnout. >> today before leaving work i just highlighted the things that i wanted to vote for, whether i was for or against, so that i would just go in and do it quickly and get out. >> ky reed reporting for wbal tv 11 news. >> this election you can stay more connected than ever before with our election 2012 app. check out our voters guide, preview the ballot questions and even find the nearest early voting centers. just search and download election 2012 on your smart phone or tablet.

so, maybe you're trying to fiwell, let me give it a shot. if you're ok with marylanders spending five hundred and... fifty million a year gaming in other states, fair enough. but if you think we should keep that money here... add twelve thousand jobs, and generate millions for schools... well you should probably vote for question seven. because if it doesn't pass, all of this goes away. that's why the post called seven, common sense. but decide for yourself.
5:14 am
now your 11 insta weather plus forecast. >> not a bad morning this morning. we do have some clouds out there. it's not total overcast, but i would say mostly cloudy at this point. no precipitation coming out of the clouds. the clouds are still attached to the circulation around the remnants of sandy and that hybrid storm nor easter/whatever you want to call it that went through here last week. it's still spinning in canada and we're still on the edge. there are some snows, lake effect related, in parts of
5:15 am
pennsylvania and new york state, and a little light rain shower activity around cleveland there in northeast ohio. that's about it. otherwise, it's very quiet. now that circulation around sandy has been holding temperatures down. we have not rebounded. doesn't look like we will. there's the picture over the city. 43 at the airport. 47 at the inner harbor. 60% the humidity. the barometer at 29.92. it's showing a rising tendency. so we're still trying to recover. there's still a scar in the atmosphere from that storm, i guess you could say. west winds at about ten miles an hour. yesterday it only made it to a 2 for the high. 62 is average. 41 was our low yesterday. 40 is typical. we were kind of on the mark yesterday. nowhere near the records of 84 and 29. we don't see 90s any more for record highs. our record lows are getting below the freezing point. of course, we're into november at this stage of the game. 47 annapolis. ton board walk it's 40.
5:16 am
parkton 40, westminster didn't check in, nor did frederick. in the 20s oakland, snow on the ground out there is helping chill things down just a little more out far western maryland. there's the satellite view. the remnants of sandy up here. that's newfoundland. we're getting the effect of that, the flow from that coming across the great lakes. that's where you see those lake snows. there's a disturbance off shore off the northeast coast. and the next storm of concern to us is out in the southwest plains there just coming into west texas out in new mexico. all right. this storm's going to zoom across the south and get out over the atlantic ocean. then there will be another one develop out there. that one will also get into the atlantic but drift farther north. the sequence of events going into next week are questionable. we have some cold temperatures coming off the great lakes and
5:17 am
then we have some more cold temperatures, another batch in the west developing behind this storm coming into the southern plains. it's warm air all tucked down near the gulf of mexico. so our forecast for today, same as yesterday really. probably more sun breaks, but still some clouds and 50 to 55 the high. breeze will pick up in the afternoon a bit northwest 10 to 15, gusting to about 20 miles an hour or so. seven-day forecast, tomorrow we still see some sunshine, but also some clouds and temperatures in the mid 50s. no big change in temperatures. morning low down in the 30s. of course, little extra sleep tomorrow morning. we set the clocks back one hour tonight, tomorrow morning, whenever. monday looks okay. 51 the high. still chilly. voting day tuesday. 52 the high. still dry, still chilly. one of those storms developing in the south. rain and wind wednesday and thursday. in the days following hurricane sandy, ocean specialists are talking about the impacts of the super storm on the chesapeake region.
5:18 am
>> experts say ocean temperatures are higher and levels are rising 1 to 2 feet. there are now more and more questions about the impact of global warming on our climate. >> the orange tree, one of the evidence markers left by super storm sandy in the baltimore area friday, university of maryland coastal e kol gist dr. court stevenson and dr. william boycourt and mike tidwell discussed with reporters concerns about future storms. >> unless we quickly solve the climate crisis, we can be pretty sure that a super hurricane fueled by global warming will eventually strike coastal maryland and virginia. >> while tidwell was convinced global warming was a major factor in super storm sandy, dr. boycourt stopped short of using a global warming blanket. he said the ocean temperature certainly rising and sea levels are rising about one to two feet a century.
5:19 am
warm moist air over the ocean is what fuels hurricanes and makes them stronger. >> you can't blank one storm to climate change but the consensus clearly in our gathering and more than the elephant in the room is clearly this is the beginning of what we're going to expect more of. >> the damage left behind in new york, new jersey and connecticut is downright frightening, and maryland officials have even admitted that we dodged mayor bullet this time. dr. stevenson pointed out, had sandy made landfall just a little more to the south, baltimore could have seen epic flooding much like we're seeing in new york city. >> if it made landfall instead of in atlantic city, maybe in ocean city, you would have had much more surge associated with this, and it probably would have produced a similar kind of surge in baltimore. 14 feet in baltimore would have been pretty amazing.
5:20 am
>> wbal tv 11 news. >> sure glad we didn't get that. relief is on the way for families facing infertility. how those struggling to have a baby will benefit from new legislation. and students trying to help out the local food bank. why sandy almost snarled their plans. plus -- >> it's the last major snap shot of the economy before the election. so what does today's jobs report mean for the campaign? so, maybe you're trying to figure out question seven. well, let me give it a shot. if you're ok with marylanders spending five hundred and... fifty million a year gaming in other states, fair enough. but if you think we should keep that money here... add twelve thousand jobs, and generate millions for schools... well you should probably vote for question seven. because if it doesn't pass, all of this goes away. that's why the post called seven, common sense. but decide for yourself.

provide a tax credit to those who choose in vitro like with adoption. it provides up to $13,350 in tax credits. >> it allowed people who wanted to use medical treatment to have that same ability. >> you're on eligible if you make less than $222,000 a year. it also covers future infertility procedures like freezing eggs before people become infertile because of chemotherapy. stay with us. there's much more news ahead on 11 news saturday morning. forget about those plastic bags. try to forget about it. here's a look at some events going on around town. so, maybe you're trying to figure out question seven.

5:32 am
cleaning up leaves. every time the sun would go behind the clouds it would get chilly. then it would come out and actually warm up. it was back and forth. today's going to be similar. i think the share of sunshine will be a little greater, all right? we're still kind of under the general circulation pattern that allows, you know, we're still under the edge of sandy a little bit. such a massive storm. circulation is still fafing that a bit. we're dragging in winds out of the northwest not from the south. that's holding our temperatures down. because those winds are coming across the great lakes, you can see lake effect rain and snow activity. some cold enough air that we're getting different temperatures generating snows in new york state, pennsylvania, little rain activity around cleveland. none of that's going to reach us today except for perhaps a few of the clouds. we'll talk about the forecast. in the longer term, another storm coming up. a baltimore county community is mourning the loss of a young life this morning. a freshman at towsend high

5:38 am
>> we've had a few nice days here, all right days. lot of clouds. few sprinkles here and there yesterday. but our temperatures just haven't been able to rise very much. this time of year it's supposed to be chilly. but let's ease into autumn. that storm brought in some cold air. we just haven't been able to shake it since. you can see the effects of the storm sandy. still, circulation around that is producing lake effect snows up in new york state and the mountains of -- welsh around pittsburgh anyway. mountains of pennsylvania and central part of the state. some sprinkles and showers in cleveland. none of it's very significant right now. 43 degrees. mostly cloudy skies here in town at bwi marshall. 47 at the inner harbor. 60% the humidity.
5:39 am
29.92 the barometer rising. actually these temperatures this morning right now are a little aboefb normal. typical low is around 40 or so. let's take a look at the current readings outside. annapolis 47, edgewood 43, parkton 40, haguers town 41. 28 oakland. they have some snow. snow's coming. they've got snow ton ground out there. that helps chill things down. altoona 36, latrobe 31. everybody that's got snow ton ground is dealing with some colder temperatures. we're relatively mild. you can see the storm circulating. we've got that flow coming around the back side of the storm. all the jet stream coming out. we have a disturbance in the plains states that's not really an issue with us but a storm beginning to take form in new
5:40 am
mexico. it will get into the southern plains. that's one of two that will be traveling across the south land over if next couple of days. that second one that comes our way, or comes towards the atlantic coast about the middle of next week we'll have to keep an eye on. today 50 to 55 the high. scattered clouds. a greater share of sun breaking through. northwest winds on average 10 to 15. we'll see gusts up around 20. the breeze will tend to pick up during the afternoon. and small craft advisories ton bay today because of the winds gusting to 20 primarily from the northwest. a two to three foot chop with the gustiest times, the waters on the open waters of the bay. bay water temperatures are solidly in the 50s. at the inner harbor it's 59. that's not extremely chilly. takes a longer time for the water to chill down. don't forget we have to turn our clocks back together, or tomorrow morning, whenever. fall back. extra hour of sleep. that's okay.
5:41 am
no complaint there. insta weather future cast. that disturbance passes to our south. by sunday afternoon, that southern plains storm developing in new mexico will be down the gulf coast states and then we'll watch it scoop off the coast here about monday in the morning or so. but then something else will be developing and starting to take form down in georgia. that one, because of the way the jets align, instead of going out over the coast, go up the coast, about the middle of the week. so here's a look at our seven day forecast. dry today and tomorrow. temperatures in the 50s. monday looks dry as well as tuesday, election day. 50s right into the middle of the week. then wednesday and thursday, that second storm gives us windy or at least breezy conditions and kind of wet. temperatures only near 50 degrees. then we dry out at the end of the week. >> well, there's no new york city marathon this year after mounting criticism from
5:42 am
residents. michael bloomberg called off the race after mounting criticism from new yorkers who said that it made more sense to use these resources to help victims from sandy. stephanie goss reports. >> not far from where it would have started at least 20 people died. houses were levelled and almost no one has power. >> thank god. my reaction is, they're coming to their senses and realizing these resources are going to be needed where it's truly needed. >> the inn stopped honoring marathoners reservations. needy new yorkers are already there and the owner would not kick them out. >> i'll putt mattress on the floor. if i need to make a decision do i throw my neighbor out into the street or provide a room for an out of towner so they can sleep and be able to run in a race, i think the decision is easy to make. i would make that decision. >> the race would have wound its way through each borough in the
5:43 am
city, a tour of sandy's destruction. >> i feel for all the people that have problems, but you don't pull the plug at the last minute. he could have made that decision days and days ago. >> transportation was already tough. the race would have closed roads and bridges. some complain it would have diverted valuable resources, like much needed police officers. last year 1,000 worked the race. and sanitation workers. the mayor disagreed, insisting the city critically needed the $340 million the marathon brings in. >> new york has to show that we are here and that we're going to recover and that we can, while we help people, still help companies that need the business and give people something to cheer about. >> race organizers started a hurricane relief fund. >> we will be donating $1 million to kick this off. and we feel so strongly that this isn't the right thing to do. >> they said the marathon is not
5:44 am
just a race. it's about helping new york city find its way to recovery. the space shuttle enterprise damaged when sandy blew through new york city. enterprise is on display at the air and space museum. the 60 foot tall inflatable pavilion that housed the orbiter was blown apart. a large section of fabric came down on the shuttle. even the tip of the tail's stablizer was torn off. it was designed as a temporary structure until the permanent home is built. presidential candidates are spinning october's job reports. questions for allowing in state tuition rates to undocumented immigrants. we'll break it down. but first here's a look at last night's winning lottery numbers.

5:49 am

so, maybe you're trying to figure out question seven. well, let me give it a shot. if you're ok with marylanders spending five hundred and... fifty million a year gaming in other states, fair enough.
6:39 am
but if you think we should keep that money here... add twelve thousand jobs, and generate millions for schools... well you should probably vote for question seven. because if it doesn't pass, all of this goes away. that's why the post called seven, common sense. but decide for yourself. radar not busy around here. there is snow shower activity in the mountains to our north up to pennsylvania and western new york state. coming off the great lakes. shower activity. sprinkles around cleveland this morning. that's about it.
6:40 am
we just have some clouds. look at that time picture outside right now. and kind of see the clouds overhead. city lights. we're not quite in day break yet. 43 at the airport. humidity 60%. right up to a high. 29.95 the barometer. that's the low. still tsh ground's wet. when it's cold, it's harder for things to dry out. we got a lot of rain, 5, 6, 7 inches of rain. we still have the west/northwest flow of air. still coming around the uthwest edges of what's left of sandy. chestertown 43, parkton 39, elkton 41. 28 oakland. they have snow on the ground. they are allowed colder temperatures. you can see some scattered clouds around the area. just a deck. it's not a heavy deck. not producing precipitation.
6:41 am
these are sprinkles up to the north of us. and here you can see what's left of sandy. low pressure center. a wave, a partial front, disturbance, circulating around that. that's also triggering some activity up in new york state and new england. and this cold air being drawn in behind that. there's also high pressure over canada which is all feeding into this. we have the jet stream helping. a developing storm to the southwest of us and elements of that beginning to show in illinois and kansas and missouri. little low pressure system up in the dakotas. there's activity going on out there. today we'll probably see more sun than we saw yesterday. 50, 55. winds gusting to 20 from the northwest. don't forget we switch to standard time overnight tonight. by tomorrow, we'll be an hour later. don't be late.
6:42 am
set your clock. get it straight. here's the european model, the model that got sandy right for a week, all right. look what it's showing. all right. here we are sunday afternoon at 3. we're still in pretty good shape. here's a storm south of us. that thing is gonna go out to sea. another storm will be coming right in behind us and developing. tuesday into wednesday that storm comes up the coast, not out to sea according to this model. it gets windy, wet. all right. you can call this a nor'easter. if this is the way things turn out, and other models treat this differently, this could be a lot of problems for areas affected by sandy. just throwing gasoline on the fire. so our forecast, we're dry until tuesday. so we get through the time change nice, voting day looks good. a little chilly.
